Bristol airport introduces new child security measures

Police at Bristol International Airport have introduced new security measures to help identify lost children.

Parents will be able to purchase coloured wristbands for their children to wear on which they can write their contact details.

Maria Tudgee, a Police Community Support Officer based at the airport, explained to the BBC that the new bands had been unveiled in time for the school summer holidays, which see many families jetting off on cheap flights abroad.

The bands will cost £1, but all money raised will be donated to the Cots for Tots campaign at Bristol Children’s Hospital.

This is the second recently announced community-focused project at Bristol City Airport over the last month.

Authorities have also begun finalising plans for a new 20-metre wind turbine to be constructed between the old and new terminals in a bid to combat the airport’s environmental impact, reports the Evening Post.

Officials have even suggested the new turbine could be up and running before the end of the year.
